A Will is a legally-binding document that makes sure your possessions and savings are given to people of your choosing, rather than the courts deciding who gets what.
It provides you with the peace of mind that your loved ones will be taken care of and your wishes relating to your funeral are granted.

While it is important to have one in place, you shouldn’t be daunted by creating one, as these days you have several options to choose from. It’s up to you which method best suits your needs.
Here is a quick and easy guide about how you can make a Will.
You can create a Will without any assistance from a professional. There are templates and kits in shops and online, meaning this is the cheapest option when it comes to writing a Will.
If you opt for this, make sure you:
You can enlist the help of a solicitor when it comes to writing your Will, meaning you can speak to a professional who is properly qualified and regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority.
Will Writers are an alternative to using solicitors. Make sure you choose one that is regulated by either the Institute of Professional Will Writers or the Society of Will Writers, as they will be regulated by a recognised trading body.
The cost of creating your Will depends entirely on how you set one up. You can pick up Will-writing kits in places like the Post Office and stationery shops for as little as £30 or you can opt to pay £500 or more for a specialist service.
After your Will has been completed, you’ll need to find a place to store it until it’s needed or you have to amend it. If you choose to set it up through a solicitor, they will more than likely store it for free, while a professional Will Writer may charge an annual fee. You can even store it in a secure place at home or in a safety-deposit box at the bank - just make sure your executor knows where it is.
